What Is Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is the direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to work more efficiently, allowing the relief of emotional and brain-based symptoms. As the brain controls your emotional well-being, psychological health and every system in your body, training it into better function has far reaching benefits.

Neurofeedback training for the brain is similar to physical training for the body. Many illnesses, disorders or unwanted behavior patterns are due to dysregulation of brain activity, and with Neurofeedback, patients can learn to achieve more functionality by retraining the brain. The brain is designed to adapt to changes in our body and the environment, so it makes sense that we should be able to re-train the brain to function optimally, the way it was designed.

How Does It Work?

Using sensors and special software we simply measure the brain activity and reflect it back through a video display. When we allow the brain to see its own activity, it can then adjust itself for better performance and function. Nothing is ever being transmitted into the brain, we are only recording and using the information revealed to us through the EEG.

By improving self-regulation of brain activity, we improve how our clients function cognitively, emotionally and behaviorally. This applies whether the client is an adult suffering from symptoms like chronic headaches, or a child dealing with more severe disorders like autism or epilepsy. It can also be a very useful tool for athletes, entrepreneurs or anyone looking to maximize their performance and function.

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

Individuals of all ages can benefit from Neurofeedback. It helps relieve symptoms of:

  • Stress

A.D.H.D

Take my hand and come with me,
I want to teach you about ADHD.
I need you to know, I want to explain,
I have a very different brain.
Sights, sounds, and thoughts collide.
What to do first? I can’t decide.
Please understand I’m not to blame,
I just can’t process things the same.
Take my hand and walk with me,
Let me show you about ADHD.

I try to behave, I want to be good,
But I sometimes forget to do as I should.
Walk with me and wear my shoes,
You’ll see its not the way I’d choose.
I do know what I’m supposed to do,
But my brain is slow getting the message through.
Take my hand and talk with me,
I want to tell you about ADHD.

I rarely think before I talk,
I often run when I should walk.
It’s hard to get my school work done,
My thoughts are outside having fun.
I never know just where to start,
I think with my feelings and see with my heart.
Take my hand and stand by me,
I need you to know about ADHD.

It’s hard to explain but I want you to know,
I can’t help letting my feelings show.
Sometimes I’m angry, jealous, or sad.
I feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and mad.
I can’t concentrate and I lose all my stuff.
I try really hard but it’s never enough.
Take my hand and learn with me,
We need to know more about ADHD.

I worry a lot about getting things wrong,
Everything I do takes twice as long.
Everyday is exhausting for me…
Looking through the fog of ADHD.

I’m often so misunderstood,
I would change in a heartbeat if I could.
Take my hand and listen to me,
I want to share a secret about ADHD.

I want you to know there is more to me.
I’m not defined by it, you see.
I’m sensitive, kind and lots of fun.
I’m blamed for things I haven’t done.
I’m the loyalist friend you’ll ever know,
I just need a chance to let it show.
Take my hand and look at me,
Just forget about the ADHD.

I have real feelings just like you.
The love in my heart is just as true.
I may have a brain that can never rest,
But please understand I’m trying my best.
I want you to know, I need you to see,
I’m more than the label, I am still me!!!!
